Monsters haunt her dreams, but humans are her worst nightmare...

Just as Emma Kincaid came into some disturbing empathic powers, she lost her mother in a car crash. She is also pretty certain she's being followed, maybe even hunted. But, is it the shadowy creatures that haunt her nightmares or the mysterious guy, shrouded in darkness, who just enrolled at Jefferson High?

 Cloak of Echoes by C.K. Dawn (Netherwalker 1.5)

Cloak of Echoes (Netherwalker, #1.5)She’s just seventeen and she fears she may be losing her mind, because isn’t that what happens when you hear voices in your head? Emma also thinks she has a stalker, but that is just plain crazy, too, right? …Still…she feels it in her core, someone is coming and they are coming for her.

When the hot new guy is enrolled at Jefferson High, he seems pulled to Emma and she finds Mattox is an unusual calm in the sea of mental chaos that surrounds her. Even as she tries her best to be prickly, he isn’t put off, but there is a reason and Emma is about to discover who and what she is and it certainly isn’t crazy.

C.K. Dawn’s CLOAK OF ECHOES is a brief piece of writing brilliance from an author who knows how to rapidly create a world we fall into with characters one can’t help but get attached to. Emma has a certain “anti-charm” in her personality, although her vulnerability and pain from loss breaks through as she tests Mattox’s patience and sincerity while testing the waters of trust.

Once again, C. K. Dawn had me from start to that oh-too-quick finish as we are taken into a magical world where one girl learns that being different is the norm and one’s ancestry becomes one’s destiny.
